I meant Velas!

Well anyway that's where i've ended up (on Sao Jorge). The winds were so contrary that I couldn't stand the thought of fighting them all the way to Flores. Whatever course I set the winds either headed me or died. I changed my mind about 6 hours out. I spent the vast majority of the day motor Sailing into headwinds. Probably the worst passage ever. Fortunately there were some people around when I arrived at 2300 and a few spare berths. A couple of French guys helped me moor up stern too. It all looked pretty neat but actually I messed up my first approach and had to take evasive action.
